Onboard view of the TT

Fancy a lap of the TT? Well now you can thanks to Dukes latest DVD
The 2009 Isle of Man TT produced the fastest racing in the event's illustrious history, with lap records tumbling as the world's greatest road racers did battle around the legendary Mountain circuit.

Thanks to the very latest filmmaking technology deployed by North One Television, incredible onboard action from around the legendry 37.73-mile course was captured throughout the festival, and now has been released on three separate DVDs.

Now, for the first time, fans can own all three volumes of TT 2009 On Bike Laps in one great value collectors' set. That's 12 laps of the TT circuit and more than four hours of white-knuckle action – all for the amazing price of £17.99.

The first disc features laps from the 2009 Practice Week with TT legend John McGuinness, TT winner Steve Plater and the ever-dramatic Guy Martin, posting average lap speeds topping an incredible 128mph.

Plus, we join three-times World Sidecar Championship team Tim Reeves and Patrick Farrance for a three wheel lap of the TT circuit.

Exceptional footage is captured by a variety of camera positions – looking up into the visor of McGuinness, seeing straight ahead from Plater's Honda and watching the suspension being battered on Martin's Hydrex machine from the low-mounted camera.

Disc two takes you into the 2009 Race Week, with TT sidecar legend Dave Molyneux, 2009 double race winner Ian Hutchinson, Martin once again and Mountain course regular Carl Rennie. The action comes from the Superbike TT, as Martin laps at 127.685mph, the first Supersport race, as Hutchinson romps to victory, the Superstock contest, where Rennie takes us around at more than 125mph on his 1000cc Suzuki, and the opening Sidecar race, where we join Moly on his way to a record-breaking 14th TT win.

This DVD is worth watching to see the spectacular closing speed of Bruce Anstey from Hutchy's rear-facing camera alone. Plus, volume two brings you a bit of history – the DVD debut of an on-board lap of the TT course filmed from an electric-powered bike. Viewers join Thomas Montano during practice for TTXGP, the inaugural race for clean emissions motorcycles, at an impressive average lap speed of 67.043mph. The forward-facing camera lets you share this historic lap - and the very first electric motorcycle spill at the TT.

The third disc features one practice lap and two racing laps from the Mountain circuit, plus an entire 2009 TT race. First up is McGuinness again, this time on the Supersport bike in practice. The camera on the back of the machine shows the outright lap record holder jumping out of his seat on the bumps and lets fans see exactly how close the riders get to the scenery – you'd swear he's scraping the hedges.
